God as Director

Religious 4 Comments

Instead of worrying about how you’re going to screw up next, interpret your life as if you’re watching an intricate movie, where you don’t know what’s coming. Someone says, “What do you think’s going to happen? Is it going to be bad?”

And you answer, “I don’t know. But I’m familiar with the previous work of the Director, and it’s always been worth it. I don’t claim to understand everything He was trying to say, but I know it was beautiful.”

Now imagine going through life, with the above attitude. You’d be a lot calmer and YOU’D MAKE FEWER MISTAKES than you make right now, worrying about not making a mistake.

  2. Michael says:

    Definitely seems to be dependent on your opinion of the Director’s previous work – there are certainly people out there who are mostly familiar with his horror movies.

  3. Mogden says:

    This is a comforting thought, but how do you square it with Jesus’ wish in the Lord’s Prayer that:

    Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done,
    on Earth as it is in heaven.

    Doesn’t that imply that the Director’s will is not fully being done on Earth now?
